Dear Haley,

Thank you so much for sending along your work. The concept piqued my curiosity, but I'm afraid I wasn't drawn in by the voice. I'm regretfully going to pass as it's not quite right for my list. Keep in mind that the industry is subjective, and another agent could very well feel differently. I wish you the best of luck.
